This is the first-ever Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet (and its C43 AMG brother)

AMG Sport is dead, long live the C43 AMG Cabrio

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the first-ever, long-awaited 2017 C-Class Cabriolet at the Geneva International Motor Show. As a budget brother of the E-Class Cabrio, this folding-top C-Class borrows many of the same open-air amenities and technology but offers a smaller, more affordable package.

The new C-Class Cabrio will feature Mercedes' neck-warming Airscarf system, plus an optional Aircap system to help prevent ruffled hair and wind noise associated with the open-air experience. The latter system works by extending a panel above the windshield when the top is down to help divert air around passengers; it is part of the "premium one” options package, and, like Airscarf, makes a lot of sense if you want a convertible that can be enjoyed a few extra months per year.

In its base form, the C300 gets a 241-hp, 273-lb-ft 2.0-liter I4 powerplant and rear-wheel drive, but you can option 4matic all-wheel drive if you wish -- which should give the entry-level Mercedes convertible a fighting chance in snowy climates. The Airmatic air suspension is likewise optional.

A nine-speed automatic transmission, however, is mandatory.

Mercedes also used the occasion to announce the 2017 C43 AMG Cabriolet, an entry-level AMG offering that fits into the slot that might have previously been filled by something from the company's now-deceased AMG Sport lineup.

In AMG trim, the C-Class Cabrio’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter engine, churning out 362 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque, can rocket the car from a dead stop to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds. The 9g-tronic auto transmission feeds power from the engine to the standard 4Matic all-wheel-drive system. Other changes from the base C-Class include a more aggressive fascia, AMG Ride Control adaptive damping and minor updates throughout to help C-Class handle the power.

No word on price for either, but we can’t imagine a base C300 Cabrio going for too much more than its coupe counterpart. Pricing will be available closer to the C-Class Cabrio’s late-summer launch. For the C43 AMG, we’ll have to wait even longer: It's slated to hit the streets this fall.
